Grace Lee Boggs

At 97, Boggs has earned the title “living legend.” The daughter of Chinese immigrants, she earned a Ph.D. from Bryn Mawr and then went on to make her mark as a lefty intellectual, a feminist, and a social activist. She’s co-written three books — including collaborations with husband Jimmy Boggs, who died almost 20 years ago — and authored two books on her own, including a remarkable autobiography titled Living for Change. In 1994, she co-founded Detroit Summer, “a multi-racial, inter-generational collective” that serves as a training ground for activists. And her longtime home on the city’s east side has been transformed into the nonprofit Boggs Center. Join her and her friends and comrades for a birthday party and screening of a documentary chronicling her story, American Revolutionary: Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs.
